ZoomInfo Helps Job Seekers Be Found
Recruiters, Corporate Hiring Managers and 5 Million Unique Visitors a Month Rely on ZoomInfo to Find Information on People and Companies
May 20, 2009 – Waltham, Mass. – With unemployment reaching an all time high, ZoomInfo™, the most comprehensive source of business information on people and companies, today announced new opportunities for job seekers to claim their profile (http://www.zoominfo.com/jobseekers), market themselves and be found by hiring managers, recruiters, and industry influencers.
"There are 4 million HR managers and 174,932 professional recruiters in America today. The 1st place these recruiters will go to find a potential candidate is ZoomInfo.com. If you're not there you can't be found - in fact you don't exist," said David Perry, author of the new book, Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 and the blog Guerilla Job Hunting. "In addition to just being found, ZoomInfo allows job seekers to stand out in a crowded job market and gain control over their online presence."
ZoomInfo uses patented technology to scan millions of corporate websites, press releases, electronic news services, blogs, SEC filings and other public online sources every day. From these sources, ZoomInfo automatically builds a person's ZoomInfo profile. These deep and informative profiles provide detail on 20 different characteristics including: employment history, geography, industry, education, credentials, photos, user-posted biography (when available) and Web references. Today ZoomInfo maintains profiles on over 45 million people at 5 million companies that are searched regularly by the general public, recruiters, the media and others.
Over the course of the last year, ZoomInfo has seen a rapid increase in the number of people claiming their ZoomInfo profile. Today, over 5,000 people claim or create a profile every week.
The top four reasons business executives and job seekers claim their profile, include:
- Be found: ZoomInfo is a tremendous resource for recruiters and potential employers. ZoomInfo's client base and recently announced partnership with AIRS, a company of The RightThing and the leader in recruitment training and technology puts this tool in the hands of over 4,500 recruiting firms which include 19 of the top 20 search firms. Recruiters use ZoomInfo to find candidates, build business and get beyond databases of resumes and job seeker profiles.
- Create an online resume, and have it updated automatically: By claiming, or creating your profile you are basically putting your resume on the web. Better yet, ZoomInfo will update it with new career info whenever it appears on the internet.
- Ensure Accuracy: There is a huge amount of data floating around the Web. ZoomInfo's patented technology finds all business information about a person and/or company and consolidates it into a single easy to access location. By claiming a profile individuals gain control over their online presence and have the ability to ensure that they are not being misrepresented on the Internet.
- Build (and defend) your expertise: If a professional wants to be known as an expert in a specific field, a ZoomInfo profile can provide third party credibility consolidating all credentials and expertise in a single location that will be found through the major search engines.
